Summer hiatus

Due to the lack of sweaters in the area at the moment, a lack of business, and a lack of time, Resweater will be on a brief hiatus for the summer. Thank you for your patience and understanding! For anyone local, I have a bulk amount of sweaters to sell... 200 sweaters for $150. I cannot ship them, so they will need to be picked up in Geneva, Il.

I hope to have lots of great sweaters for you at the end of the summer when I return! Have a great summer!

It's Sweater Monday!

I'm still clearing out the sweaters in my shop. Residents of Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Indiana, Iowa, and Ohio, buy any 10 or more sweaters from my shop (includes mystery lot sweaters and individually listed sweaters) for just $2 each, regardless of what they are marked!! All other continental states buy any 10 or more sweaters from my shop (includes mystery lot sweaters and individually listed sweaters) for just $3 each, regardless of what they are marked!! Just email me with your choices, and I will send you an invoice for the correct amount. At these priced, the sweaters will be disappearing quickly, so stock up now, while you still can! I still have mystery lots too (100% lambswools, 100% merinos, 100% wools), but won't for long!

If you want to be added to my email reminder list, just let me know, and you will get an email every time I post a Sweater Monday, as well as access to email only exclusive sales. Ready for the sweaters?

 What is Sweater Monday? It is when I show the sweaters that are being added to my inventory. This is an opportunity for anyone to "call dibs" on sweaters they see here that they want to buy.  To "call dibs" or ask any questions, please email me (resweatercontacts@gmail.com). If you call dibs, please understand that you are committing to purchase them. Asking questions does not obligate you to buy them, but does not hold the sweaters for you. Pricing for individual sweaters is generally as follows: most patterned wool and wool blend sweaters $7 or $8 each (depending on size and pattern), cashmere $8 for solid colors (patterned, striped, and big mens cashmere $10). All exceptions will be noted. You are welcome to combine orders from Sweater Monday sweaters with sweaters in my shop. Since I seem to get the same questions about Sweater Monday, I will be posting this paragraph on the bottom of each Sweater Monday post.
 For previous Sweater Monday posts, I used to post them on a separate blog, Sweaters of Yore, but that was getting complicated and time consuming. I now have created one post to contain any remaining unsold sweaters from previous Sweater Mondays. I feel like this will be simpler.

Sweaters still available from prior Sweater Mondays

Resweater clearance!



Many things have been, and will be, changing in my life (all for the good :)  ), and in a few months i'll be moving. When I do, I won't have the space or time to run Resweater how I have been. I will no longer be listing anything in my shop, but selling only through my Sweater Monday blog posts (here), and I will only be selling patterned wool and cashmere sweaters. I am liquidating all the sweaters I have currently listed in my shop.

Update: I have updated the prices in my shop. They now reflect the actual clearance prices. Get 'em while they last!

I'm doing some paring down before I move, and have tearfully decided I don't really need 300 purses... ok, not 300, but I have way too many ;), so I am offering up some great ones to you!
